FBHVC Childline

National Drive It Day was created by the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs in 2005.  It is the occasion when historic vehicle enthusiasts and the public at large have the opportunity to celebrate the One Thousand Mile Trial organised in 1900 to prove the viability of the new invention, the motor vehicle. It’s also a chance to raise awareness and support amongst the public for the historic vehicle movement and keeping transport heritage on UK roads. 

If you have missed out on purchasing a Drive It Day rally plate, please know you can still contribute to such a worthwhile cause. Please take a moment to view these two videos recorded by Childline® counsellors.

In the words of Sir Peter Wanless, CEO of the NSPCC “Childline® is a crucial service on which young people can rely - day or night - whatever problems or dangers they are facing.”
